After adding a Wi-Fi worm module to hack wireless networks earlier this year, the operators of the Emotet malware are now using stolen attachments to help increase the authenticity of the spam emails they use to infect users’ systems.

As reported by BleepingComputer, this is the first time the botnet has used stolen attachments to add credibility to emails through the use of an attachment stealer module that was added to the malware around June 13th, according to Marcus Hutchins.
